An Indian Engagement Ceremony | Rochester NY Photography

I've never seen anything like it. The colors, the singing, the food; the whole service was simply beautiful. The small ceremony took a little over an hour and heavily included both sets of parents. There was a gift giving, blessings, new clothes and so much more I couldn't explain. I watched and captured as each guest blessed the couple and shared in a meal together. It was truly a special event. I hope you enjoy this little peek into what it was like as much as I enjoyed being there.

Though I may not have understood the traditions, or the language, or the symbolism of what was happening, it was very clear to me that this couple was in love. It was nice to see both families come together to celebrate, welcome and support this newly engaged couple. Congratulations to the bride and groom to-be, as well as their families! -Lori
